Registering

  1. You can browse the auctions at any time without registering,  but to bid you must first register. 

To register, simply click on the Register link.  Choose a user name which you can easily remember, and fill in the other required fields.  Your password will automatically be generated and emailed to you.  You can change your password at any time by choosing the Member Services option and then clicking the Change Your Password link.

You only need to register once,  as you can change your user information at any time by choosing Member Services, and then clicking the Edit My Registration link.

Notes: There may only be one account per email address.  The system will not let you create more than one account with the same email address.

Depending on how the administrator has set up the auction system,  your account may need to be verified before it is activated.

 If verification is required, you will not be allowed to place bids until your account is activated.

  Bidding
  1. Once you have an active account,  you are ready to bid.  Simply navigate to the auction you want to bid on via the category listings or using the search features,  and then place your bid.
  2. Note the type of auction that you are bidding on.  Standard, Reverse, Multiple Item, and Blind auctions all work differently.
  3. It is highly recommended that you read over all sale, payment and shipping terms and conditions before you place your bid.  Some items may not be returnable, but please note that by bidding, you are legally bind to purchasing the item if you are the winning bidder.
  Completing the Transaction
    Once an auction closes an email will be sent to the winning bidder containing contact information for the seller.  If you are the winning bidder you should immediately contact the seller to arrange for payment and pickup of the item.  The seller may also contact you via the contact information you provided upon registration.
 

Auto Extend Bidding
Auto Extend Bidding deals with auctions with a high volume of bids, during the last 15 minutes prior to its scheduled close.  If high volume bidding occurs in that timeframe, an additional 15 minutes will be added to the scheduled closing time.  This may occur multiple times if high volume continues.  Be sure to refresh the browser near auction closing times to have the most up to date bid and closing information.

Understanding the Proxy Bid
The MDUR Surplus site allows users to place bids higher than the required minimum.  The site will automatically bid on the user's behalf, up to the maximum amount entered.  By entering the maximum amount, the user is willing to spend on the item, the site will incrementally bid until either the user is the high bidder or the maximum bid is exceeded.  Thus, the user won't have to keep bidding every time another user places a bid, unless that user exceeds your proxy amount.  The user may increase the proxy bid amount at any time while being the high bidder.  It will not increase the current bid.
